By BILL CUSUMANO
Special to The Daily
DETROIT - After almost
a decade of frustration the
American L e a g u e finally
gained some ground on the
Nationals, d e f e a t i n g the
senior circuit 6-4 in last
night's All-Star game held
in Tiger Stadium .
The American League hadn't
seen a victory since 1962 in the
annual summer event but two-
run homers by Reggie Jackson,
Frank Robinson and Harmon
Killebrew offset three National
League circuit shots and brought
the series record to 23-18-1 in
favor of the Nationals.
The victory was a comeback
affair for the Americans as

Henry Aaron of Atlanta in the
third had jumped the National
League into a 3-0 lead. Both
shots came off Oakland's blazing
Vida Blue but Blue was to be-
come the winner in his first All-
Star appearance when his team-
mates struck for four tallies in
the bottom of the third.
Taking a cue from their oppo-
nents the Americans used the
home run ball, with Jackson hit-
ting the first after Luis Aparico
led off the third with a single
against Pittsburgh's Dock Ellis.
Ellis then gave himself some
sort of dubious. distinction by
feeding Jackson a high fast ball
on a 1-2 count that turned into
one of the most titanic homers
even seen in Tiger Stadium. The
shot, a stunning live drive, was
still rising when it smashed into
a light tower on the right field
roof, which rises 82 feet above
the playing field.
Visibly shaken, Ellis followed
with a walk to Minnesota's Ca-
rew and looked to be in serious
trouble. He managed to sneak
by Bobby Murcer and Carl Yas-
trzeiski but then ran into
trouble with Baltiiore's Frank
Robinson.
Once again working to a 1-2
count, Ellis tried once again to
challenge the hitter with a high
fast ball and saw it deposited in
the lower deck in right field,
vaulting the Americans into a 4-3
lead. For Robinson it was his
first hit ever as an American
League All-Star and also made
him the first man in history to
hit a home run for each league in
the classic.
After that some semblance of
order was restored by pitchers
Jim Palmer of Baltimore and
Juan Marichal of San Francisco
but in a contest which saw half
of the hits be home runs the
fireworks were bound to resume.
Detroit's own Al Kaline got
the action started again in the
sixth when he led off with a single
against- Ferguson Jenkins of Chi-
cago, the Nationals new pitcher.
Killebrew then came to the plate
and with the count at 1-2, once
again, blasted a shot into the

upper deck of the 'eft field
stands which proved o be the
winning margin.
The National League had a
final gasp in the eighth when
Pittsburgh's Roberto Clemente
slammed a solo homer into the
right center field stands off De-
troit's Mickey Lolich. Lolich
then proceeded to retire the last
five batters to protect the vic-
tory for Blue.
Robinson was named most val-
uable player for the game but it
was really just a matter of de-
ciding which home run hitter to
honor as few other things of note
were done during the contest.
As in any game there were also
several candidates for biggest
bust and the Pittsburgh Pirates
supplied most of them. Ellis, the
starting pitcher, ended up with
the most egg on his face after his
blasts against National League
manager Sparky Anderson.
Anderson, who had announced
Marichal as his starting pitcher
last Saturday, switched to Ellis
after the Pirate hurler had pub-
licly stated that, "There is no
way he would start one brother
(Ellis) against another (Blue).
referring to the fact that he and
the amazing Vida are both Black.
But as for the villain of the
evening, the fans had chosen himi
before the contest even began.
When Baltimore manager Earl
Weaver stepped out of the dug-
out he was greeted by 53,000
boos from the partisan Detroit
crowd who resented what they
felt to be slight of Norm Cash
by Weaver. Weaver originally
was not going to place Cash on
the team but an injury to Boog
Powell placed the Tiger first
baseman in the starting lineup.
Cash, unfortunately for the
home town, didn't vindicate his
fans by smashing a homer, in-
stead striking out twice. But most
of the departing crowd didn't
seem to mind as they savored the
long sought victory, being able
to forget for a brief moment that
their league still needs five more
victories in a row just to square
the series.
